Good evening my wonderful bakers and cake Lovers. As you all know, we had a grand party last week Friday the 9th December in honor of the six associates who participated in the one month CSR training, the tutors and the sponsors of the programme. We also used the this grand event to celebrate the 1 year anniversary of 24/7 naija cake affairs blog. The previous week saw this blog and ofcourse the founder (my humble self) decorated with the prestigious award of Nigeria's best cake blog/writer for 2016 at the Naija Top Bakers 2016 awards....what a way to celebrate our first anniversary!
This grand ball witnessed lots of Naija Pro bakers and the industry's celebrated vendors and manufacturers. I want to segment the picture show into phases so we can show enough pictures for you my dear reader to have a feel of what happened there.
These pictures were picked from the RED CARPET reception....
The much awaited End of year Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) training project has finally kicked off today, Monday 14th November 2016. It is expected to run daily (week-days only) for 3 weeks and a few days. The project will be rounded up with a certificate/ award grand ball with date and venue to be announced later.
The venue of the training is Ontop Classics Pastry Academy facility in Isolo, Lagos.
The two days of this week (Wednesday, 26th and Thursday, 27th October) witnessed yet another ground-breaking assemblage of super bakers and sugar artists in the Naija cake industry. Once more the ever progressive brand in the industry had created the forum for this converge. It is the 11th anniversary of the brand Kogsy Sugarcraft Centre! This event pulled together, numerous sugar giants from every corner of Nigeria and abroad. It was a blast for pro-bakers and beginners alike. There were cake master classes, exhibition and ofcourse sales. Before I proceed to roll out the pictures of the events that took place in this exhibition, I'll attempt to give a brief history of Kosy Sugarcraft Centre.
Finally the selection is over! the successful candidates have emerged. It was a tough one for the selection. I want to say a big thank you to all our associates who applied for the End of Year CSR programme. I want to assure you all that you are winners! We only have to choose six people out of the lot. We had to increase the number to six after seeing how important it is to empower more people through this CSR programme. But you know what? the CSR continues! It does not end here. If you did not make the list this time, you will definitely make it next time.
Now the shortlisted candidates are:

Good evening my wonderful bakers and cake lovers. I know a lot of people might be wondering why I choose to report or showcase events after they are long gone. Now hear my reason: I don't run a gossip blog! my line of reporting is real ans substantial. this means that it makes sense as long as there is need of it in life. That is why you will see a post here have more views, likes and comments as the day passes by. They are timeless!
On this note I want to present to you my wonderful readers, the events that took place on the recently concluded ICES convention in Lagos. It was da bomb! I was still busy counting my blessings for attending that event. I got to see so many lovely people I have been longing to see face to face. Now that was a moment of hugs and kisses! i can't count how many, it was just awesome to see lots of bakers I have not met in person before then. Ok; enough of me and the bakers
